Restaurant With A View

Not only does The Dalles offer breathtaking views, it also offers delicious, gourmet food. Celilo Inn is fortunate enough to be located so close to so many incredible restaurants. Our guests need not venture more than 5 minutes from the hotel before coming across a locally popular restaurant! One of our favorite restaurants is the Windseeker, which combines fresh, yummy food and exquisite views.

The Windseeker is located right next to the Columbia River, providing its patrons with spectacular views while they dine. Depending on the season, guests to the restaurant can sit inside or they can take in the surroundings more fully by sitting on the inviting patio.  In addition to the natural beauty of the Gorge, the Windseeker has planted beautiful gardens that patrons can stroll through after their delicious meal.

However, the Windseeker offers more than just great views, their food is exceptional as well.  Basing their dishes on the local cuisine, they specialize in mouth-watering seafood dishes, but if seafood isn’t your favorite flavor there is plenty more to choose from. Between crisp salads, juicy burgers, and flavorful pastas you’re bound to find something you love. Stop by on Sunday’s for their brunch where they serve gourmet omelets and Belgian waffles.

For more information on local restaurants be sure to speak to our friendly staff when staying at Celilo Inn.

Good Weather Means Good Hiking

It’s no secret that The Dalles and the Columbia Gorge as a whole is one of the most beautiful places in the Country. Fortunately, Celilo Inn is located right in the midst of all this beauty. Many of our guests love the outdoors just as much as we do and are constantly looking for new places to hike, picnic and explore. One of the places we frequently recommend is Columbia Hills State Park.

The 3,338-acre park is home to breathtaking views and wildlife as well as trails, a 7,500 foot freshwater shoreline of the Columbia River and Horsethief Lake. Guests love packing up food and heading to Columbia Hills State Park for a picnic or to spend one of our famously hot days next to the cool water of the Columbia River or Horsethief Lake. If hiking is more your style then rest assured there is plenty of that to be done at this expansive park as well.

If you’re looking to truly take in the scenery than you will definitely want to visit Columbia Hills State Park the next time you stay with us.

For more information on local parks be sure to speak to our friendly staff when staying at Celilo Inn.

A Night Out At The Theater

If you’re looking to stretch your artistic horizons you may be surprised to hear that The Dalles is a great place to do that! The Theatre Company of The Dalles, located only a few minutes from Celilo Inn is one of our local gems.

Established in 1966, the company was originally called The Masqueraders, but in the 80’s they decided to revamp the theater. This included changing the name from The Masqueraders to The Theatre Company of The Dalles. Overtime the one thing that has remained consistent is the passion and love of quality theater.

Currently, The Theatre Company puts on around four plays a year. Each play ranges in genre and notoriety.  If you’re staying at Celilo Inn sometime within the next few months you can catch the classic Aristophanes’ comedy Lysistrata. To find out the season schedule, show times or order tickets visit www.thetheatrecompany.org.
